Paper Sundaes Challenge #28 - Back to School

Happy Sundae!  Today marks the 28th challenge for Paper Sundaes, boy how time flies!  This week's Paper Sundaes Challenge #28 is a Back to School Challenge and is sponsored by our wonderful monthly sponsor Simon Says Stamp!  Show us your Back to School or Teacher Creations!  I have to say I had a hard time with this one since I don't normally make Back to school cards however I did try something new which I'm completely addicted to now!  That is colouring with Prismacolour pencils & blending with odorless paint thinner.  Bet you thought I'd never colour with anything other than copics....that's what I thought too!  The image I used was by Magnolia & is called "Tilda with Slate" which you can purchase at Simon Says Stamp.  I had received it in an image swap over at SCS and it was stamped with non-compatible ink for copics so I decided to try the Prismacolours...SO MUCH FUN!  Here's my card:
I don't have many colours but I think for my first attempt at it I managed OK.  The paper is all by Scenic Route & I absolutely love this paper and wish I had bought more of it!  I picked up the ribbon recently at my favourite LSS Country Lane (it is suede in the centre) and the square red brads I've had forever so it was nice to use them.  The scallop oval was cut with a Spellbinders Nestabilitie die.  Simple card but I'm happy with it.  

On another note if you are a member online on Facebook did you know that Simon Says Stamp has a group as well?  The link to the group is here & of course I'm a member!  I saw a post yesterday that they are going to be carrying Prima Papers really soon & here is the link to see them.  They are fabulous!  The great thing about being a member of this group there is that they post new items they are carrying, information about sales, card inspirations & of course random draws for prizes!  I've yet to win but I keep trying!  Hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend!

Fabulous card, and I never would have guessed it was your first colouring attempt with a new medium or that you had limited colour choices--the colouring came out great! Happy Sunday :-)

Love your card, Crystal! You did a great job with the coloring! A lot of times I find my prismacolors easier to shade with than my copics.
